Summary

Charles Henstock, vicar of Thrush Green, is living in his new vicarage after the old one burned down. In its place are eight retirement homes, but there’s heated debate in the village about the new residents. How to choose who will live there? How will they get on together? And how will they accommodate all the pets?

Meanwhile the old residents have their worries. At the school Miss Watson learns that her brother has had an accident; an argument flares up between Edward Young and Dr Lovell; and Dottie Harmer becomes dottier by the day.

Lovely easy read.

A very relaxing easy listen. It was as good as the other Thrush Green novels.

Most enjoyable.

Having had the Thrush Green titles on cassette many years ago, I decided to take the opportunity to listen to them again.
Miss Read doesn't disappoint, the story of the everyday going's on of Cotswold country folk, beautifully narrated by the late Gwen Watford. I love the way the author has made the characters so interesting. Very gentle reading at it 's best.

Miss Read's Thrush Green series is a favourite. Good clean village life. Something I can listen to at work as a school librarian without worrying about children hearing unsavoury stuff. I've lost count of how many times I have listened to and read these books.
(But this app is stupid if it won't let me post a review without adding an "OPTIONAL" title!!!)
